Electrify (Japanese: そうでん Electrify) is a non-damaging Electric-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is the signature move of Helioptile and Heliolisk.

Effect

If the target has not yet used a move, Electrify makes the target's move Electric-type for that turn, even if it is a status move. Moves with a charging turn will only change type if the user is affected by Electrify on the turn it does damage. Electrify does not change Conversion into an Electric-type move, thus Conversion will not change the user into the Electric-type. (If Conversion were at the top of the target's move list.)

Electrify does not affect Struggle.

If the move Flying Press is affected by Electrify, it deals Electric/Flying-type damage. If the move Freeze-Dry is affected by Electrify, its ability to hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively does not stack with its Electric typing (a Water-type Pokémon hit by the move will only take ×2 damage); in Inverse Battles, Freeze-Dry affected by Electrify will hit Water-type Pokémon super effectively.

Description

Games Description
